    Perfect for kids

    |
    Posted .

    My 7 year old wanted a "fitbit" but when looking for one, I found this Garmin fitness tracker designed for kids. It has limited functionality but is geared for kids and he loves it. It tracks "steps" (though I'm not convinced it's very accurate) as well as "activity" time, with a goal automatically set for 60 minutes of daily activity. And it displays the time of day. It also allows me to award coins for chores or tasks. It's easy to customize - I can choose from a long list of chores or create my own, then assign values to each chore, as well as the rewards that the coins can be redeemed for (so if he earns 10 coins, he gets to choose dinner one night, etc.). It syncs to an app that I keep on my phone, so we regularly check his daily steps and activity level, and he really strives to get to his goal. It also tracks sleep, which we can review in the app. And it's waterproof so great for swimming and bathing. He is really loving it!

    Great for kids but big kids may need a larger band

    we purchased 2 of these during the pandemic. With the kids stuck at home we wanted to make sure they were getting enough activity. Now they compete to see who can reach their goals first. The app is great and we can add chores for each kid to help them gain coins. We already had a reward system for them but this integrated well. It also lets us track there sleep. The one we bought for my son had a large band which was a little bit tight. after a few days it was leaving a mark. the packaging only comes wiht one size band. if you want the XL band you can buy it for an additional $20. I didnt like having to pay extra just to make it fit so i took off a star.

    My Son Loves it.

    I have a Fitbit tracker and my son saw how involved I was in tracking my daily steps and staying active. He wanted to compete with me but I couldn't really find something in the Fitbit that worked for him. This Garmin doesn't have to be constantly recharged like my fitbit, it handles water much better and keeps my son active in competition with me for daily steps even thought the Garmin and Fitbit run on separate apps. The only downfall was after 5 months the band broke and we had to order a new one. Costs about 20 on Amazon so getting a new band as opposed to a new Garmin was the way to go. Overall a great buy and love to see how excited my son is about exercise and healthy competition.

    My 7 yr old son LOVES his band.

    Posted .

    Bought this as a Christmas gift for my 7 year old son. He loves the activity counter, he has been more active since he received it. Reaching his goal & exceeding it is a great motivator for him. I love the sleep tracker, it helps me monitor the quality & duration of his sleep. The band is easy to sync and my son enjoys getting the points for doing his chores. You can even set rewards...which I didn't realize when I purchased it. The band fits his wrist fine, we've had no problems. Overall I would definitely recommend this band. Pretty cool for a kiddie toy. But it has more of a big kid look which my son loves. (He has the black band)

    Got as a gift for my kids so they can start to keep track of time and their activity. They love to hit their goals and see how many steps they have done in a day. The alarm on it has been helpful but only does whole number in increments of 5.

    Great tracker and behavior motivator

    Posted .

    My son walked up and down the stairs... and the whole house... to get steps on the first day he got this! Not only is this a great activity tracker, but my 5 year old loves the reward points we assign him daily! It has helped to get him excited about performing his responsibilities such as taking out the trash or clean-up. Great for this age range!

    Kids love it

    Posted .

    I was looking for a step tracker and watch that my young kids could navigate through and understand on their own and the vivofit jr. accomplished that. They love its features. I like that it's not completely tied to a smart phone. You need the app during initial setup and if you choose to use certain features (goals, rewards) but it's not mandatory for what my kids enjoy--counting steps, having a watch, timer, etc. The only unknown is the battery. It is not rechargeable and is supposed to last a year. I am curious to see if it lasts that long and how easy it will be to replace. For now my kids love it so I am very pleased with it.

    My seven year old daughter likes the Garmin Vivofit tracker. I would have given it 5 starts, but the back light is not a bright as I would like.

    Very small

    I purchased this for my son. It says it is from kids up to nine years old. Upon opening this would fit maybe maybe up to a 5-6 year old. We were not able to try it in store as it was in secured packaging.

    Great method to get the kids active

    |
    Posted .

    Being a Garmin family it was only a matter of time before our children got one. Key thing first was for the little ones had to tell the time using an analogue clock/watch first. This one was for our six year old daughter and she loves it and the app you can use to track your activity. The app can also be used to get the kids to do chores for rewards. That helps a lot. My daughter is active and now doing chores without being asked several times

    This is the 2nd Garmin viofit Jr that my 8 year old has had. The first worked great for over a year and this one is still going strong. He showers in it, sleeps in it, swims in it etc and it still works great!

    Good activity tracker for kids

    |
    Posted .

    This is a good activity tracker for the kids. The wristband is a bit small for kids. My 5 yr old is average size but it fits him pretty snuggly. The description says that it’s for kids 5-9 yrs. I don’t think it’ll fit my kids by the time he’s 7-8. The step counts might be a bit off counting more for less. However, the nice thing is it’s kid-friendly, keeps my kid interested in doing more activities to earn points/rewards which is the whole purpose of coughing up quite a bit $$ for a device for kids. We’ll come back to provide more updates since my kid only has it for a week.

    This Garmin is designed for kids and I think they did a great job. The features on it are such that kids can easily relate, and they assist the user in reaching and/or even exceeding their goals for the day.

    Bought this for my son's 8th bday. His older sister has a more expensive fitbit and he wanted something similar. We were afraid he'd lose/damage/forget to charge something more expensive. This was a perfect solution. It doesn't require charging and was less expensive than the fitbit. He almost never takes it off and likes to use it for step counting and as a watch. There are other functions on it as well that are supposed to motivate him to complete chores, but the thrill of that feature only lasted about a week. Don't have any real complaints, other than its still a little pricey if you don't buy it on sale.

    Nice device to encourage kids activity

    |
    Posted .

    In the era of electronic devices replacing physical activity for kids this is a good idea to help get them motivated. Good starter for young kids. My daughter got very competitive on who's winning the step race ;) She also loves that she has the only one that can go in the pool in the family. The only complaint would be that band it comes with is REALLY small. My daughter is 6 and it left marks after wearing for a few days. We stretched it on a container which helped but will probably have to look at replacement bands to try and get something bigger for her.
